Petition for Native American Heritage Day

Please sign the Petition for Native American Heritage Day

My heart is in tune with the Native Americans and the native people around the world. I am sensitive to what they have endured over the centuries, it is time for all of us Americans to come together and acknowledge their contributions and honor their tradition with the Native American Heritage Day.

Ms. Ruth Bryan, with a Cherokee heritage in her veins has taken the initiative to make this happen, with ample signatures she will be powered to go forward.

Could you please sign this online petition to commemorate an annual Native American Heritage day? if you want to remember it, just go to www.FoundationforPluralism.com and sign the petition.

Here is the link - http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/naheritageday

The civility of a nation is expressed in terms of how it cherishes its minorities; it’s under privileged, the weak and insignificant segments of the society. In an ideal society each individual member of the society feels free from fear, and feels secure knowing and believing that the rule of law applies to one and all. Justice is the core value of such a society.

There are still nations out there, who are yet to take their first step towards the goal of civility, and thank God, we Americans have come a long way and are blessed with the opportunities and wherewithal’s to do it.

Each community, each nation and each faith is like a beautiful bus; when you plan to go somewhere, you make sure all its tires have the same amount of air pressure for it to run effectively, to give better mileage, lasting tire wear, all the mechanical parts must be greased, all the parts must be checked for a safe, stable and sure journey.

We need to work together to ensure that every one is on par to ride the road of progress, we need to fill the tire if the pressure is inadequate, instead of asking the tire to fill itself. Whose loss is it if the tire does not fill itself?

We need to work for a well balanced, smoothly functioning society. Ignoring one tire or a community is an irresponsible thing for the bus journey.

Peace and prosperity of our World hinges on justice and plurality, absence or deficiency of it will cause the BUS to slow down. It is in the interests of Community of the Nations to bring up the people in ditches on to a level playing field, and let them compete from that point forward. Imagine each community to be a tire of the bus, if all the tires have adequate air pressure, the smoothness of the journey is certain, assured and safe.

Each one of us needs to be the 'source' of goodwill to bring that equilibrium. You and I are not safe if the world around us isn't. All change begins with you and me. And I pledge that whatever I do, I will do it to bind people together, and will be a source of goodwill.

There is a heritage day for the people of Asia Pacific, for the African Americans and it is time for the Native American Heritage Day.

  3. I live in Dallas. Even though you can find practically twenty,000 much
    more males within this metropolis than ladies, this determine is a little
    bit misleading. There is certainly a higher number of gay males, and
    also immigrant employees, who skew the numbers.
    All the areas around the listing seem to become big towns that possibly have related kinds of
    populations. If you are just seeking for any great place to celebration then it is excellent.
    If you are looking for a boyfriend or partner, you will be let down.

  6. Wait, what is wrong with "light" olive oil? Light refers to color for olive oil, is
    there some heated processing to change its color or is it (my assumption) a natural variation point?
